Is Outlook 2007's Out Of Office text stored in a local file?

I'm trying to delete a users text in her OOO message and she's got some table in it, I can't delete it.  Might just be a remote issue, but I was wondering if this text is stored in an actual file on her computer that I could just delete so it will be blank and I can put in what I need to.  

Thanks.

Go to Start > Run and type in the following and hit ENTER:

outlook /cleanrules

Outlook should be picked up, otherwise enter the full path to it followed by the /cleanrules switch.

Careful with the /cleanrules switch, as I believe it will delete all of the user's rules.

Are you able to access her mailbox via OWA?  Maybe you can delete it there if you can't do so in the Outlook client.

OOO Is not stored locally it is stored on the exchange server. Otherwise you would ONLY be able to change it on the machine you set it.

Try OWA and edit the message.

yeah, OWA won't work as we're having a permissions issue with that right now.  I'll do the /cleanrules.  She's no longer with the company and I just need to set something saying that.

/cleanrules wont.  If she has left the company then why not just export her mail and then dissable the account?
